3) Is it possible to use apt-get to update a HURD system the same
way that you can with GNU/Linux?
Yes (assuming you are using *Debian* GNU/Hurd :-).

What would I need to put in my sources.list file to do that?
The same thing you would use for your other Debian system, except
that the only available distribution is ¨unstable¨, aka ¨sid¨.

You also need to add gnuab, although I do not remember the details
about that.  I think it is mentioned in the documentation.


The last time I had read the mailing lists ssh was having problems with the random number generator (/dev/random), so that's the main thing I wanted to know. I'd like to
be able to access that computer via my windows computer.

The URL/source line is what I was wondering about with sources.list, unless I can just use and it figures out on its' own that i want Hurd binaries and not
GNU/Linux ones.

I'll give it a shot and see if it sees my network card; if it doesn't I can always reinstall

Thanks again!
